This is one of my go-to places for meeting with couples for wedding planning. It's calm and unique, with a wide selection of teas to explore and delicious, simple tea meals, bento box style, plus some tasty snacks, all presented with kind and relaxed service. You can choose to sit at a western-style table or at a low table on... More

My 2 teenage daughters and I were visiting the Georgetown area of Washington DC. After rubbing elbows with all the other tourists in the heat of the DC summer, it was so nice to enter this charming tea house. Your spirits are immediately lifted as you enter into a light airy space. The luncheon plate was prepared to perfection and... More

Went to this 'authentic' Chinese tea house - actually located in Georgetown - right near the Potomac.. Warmly greeted by the hostess and offered floor or table seating. I ordered Keemun tea and my husband ordered iced tea flavored with grapefruit juice. We also had the "Tea Meal" for a very attractive $14 price. It consisted of a tomato, tofu,... More

Totally positive experience. Highly recommended for hanging out over tea and lights snacks or for tea + lunch, either alone or with one or a few others. Is the place open late? I'd come late too. We came for lunch on a beautiful weekday recently. You walk through the entryway and up a few steps into a broad, high space... More

This is not your average Chinese restaurant serving Moo Goo Gai Pan! When you enter the first thing you notice is the stark beauty of the woods used on the floors and antique-style Chinese furniture. No reds and golds, no dragons, etc. here! There is a section on a raised platform where you can sit on cushions at a low... More

A cozy restaurant with a nice set up/ deco/ atmosphere ... Very limited food menu: 1 soup, 3 main dishes and a few appetizers ..... However very tasty and cooked in a very healthy way: no butter, a tiny bit of oil ..... Definitely to be visited once or twice every month!

As we were waiting for our Trolly bus to pick us up, I noticed this place and decided to check it out (being the avid tea drinker that I am) As I went inside I was impressed with all the selections of teas. The staff was very friendly as I purchased several bags of tea. I just wish I had... More

I have visited Ching Ching Cha on my birthday last January (2013), and I was delighted by the quiet, relaxed atmosphere, the lovely furniture and the quality of the service. Extremely polite and professional personnel match the wide list of teas. Teas are served in an elaborated way that includes a large clay pot for hot water heated by a... More
